Don't be so hard !
kernel.org has been up and running for over 10 years or so no?
So, with a rough 10 days downtime, that's (1-10/3650) = 99,7% availability in presence of malicious faults.
OK, that figure is going to drop until the site comes up again but, well... I wish other sites had the same result personnally; and the figure will start to go up again as soon as the site comes back online.

Furthermore, 100% availability did not look serious. Enjoy the holiday while that security benchmark finally gets a true run.

This "holiday" occurs just as students in the U.S. are preparing to return to college. I had planned to fix a suspend/resume bug on my daughter's laptop, but I cannot access the necessary patches. Now she'll have to live with the problem until the real holidays come this winter.

Ironically, when she returns to campus, she'll be within a couple of blocks of the machines that host the patches that she needs. If only I could knock on the door, USB stick in hand ...

SSH is not an option?

Just think of it as an opportunity for your daughter to learn how to compile and install her own kernel instead of depending on you to do it. If the bug is a real pain, it may even provide her with some needed motivation.
